MBC Sunday Night Night, “We Got Married” has shown their new couples Lee Hwi Jae/Jo Yeo Jeong and Kim Hyun Joong/Hwang Bo for the last 2 weeks. On the 18th May broadcast, the two couples have taken into and shown their own characters. However, viewers were pretty harsh on them. It’s not fun like before. The viewers neither feel touched or have a heart-throbbing feeling.
What is the reason behind this? The exaggerated character expression (of the new couples) and the awkward situations are some of the major reasons but the biggest reason of them all is the viewers’ desire to see Alex-Shin Ae couple again. They were the ideal man and woman, and the loving couple. People can’t seem to erase their love for this couple. (the same with all of us here)
We know about this from the reactions at the message board after the end of last episode’s broadcast. People talked about how they felt throbbing (in their hearts) when they watch the two (Alex-Shin Ae) and that something was missing after they (Alex-Shin Ae) left. (their void can’t be replaced)
Viewers said, “Hwang Bo/Kim Hyun Joong couple went to the beach. But if it was Al-Shin that walked on the beach, it would’ve been pretty like a painting…and what kind of great memories would they make.” “In the past I was always looking forward to the show every week and was anxiously waiting for Sunday. But now, there are no more smiling moments (in the show). Al-Shin couple come back soon.” suggesting their return to the show.
Today’s ‘We Got Married’ had a special 100 minute broadcast.

As much as I agree that I miss seeing Alex and Shin Ae, it’s unfair to compare the two new couples to them since they are different and portraying a different kind of married couple relationship. Plus, they are only just starting out so it’s probably pretty difficult for viewers to adjust to them after more than 8 episodes. For one reason alone, Alex and Shin Ae absence is a big gap that will never be filled unless they themselves come back to the show.
